Teaching Methods

Teaching will be based on theoretical and practical classes where the main aspects of the workings of biological vision, particularly human, and of the computational models that emulate biological vision will be presented.
There will also happen seminars and weekly presentations by the students, tutored by the teachers, as well as practical problems of a computational nature resulting from the application of topics covered in the theoretical classes.

Learning Outcomes

To acquire knowledge on the workings of biological vision, particularly human, and of the computational models that emulate biological vision. To develop computational skills applicable to clinical models and robotics.

Work Placement(s)
